Public Safety Moves In
Written by Bwog Staff
More news from the desk of Barnard Public Safety, as residents of BC dorms just received an email announcing that Public Safety officers will be doing routine rounds throughout residence halls a few times a day. Officers will also be making sure that everyone who’s in the building is supposed to be there, and so it’s now “important that all residential students serve as an escort whenever you have a guest in the building.”
Bwog just got off the phone with Public Safety, who said that the change isn’t a repsonse to any specific incident, and that Columbia “pretty much does the same thing already.”
Full email after the jump.
Residential Life & Housing would like to inform all residence hall students
that beginning tonight, uniformed Public Safety Officers will begin doing
rounds on individual floors of our residence halls a few times each day. We
welcome the Public Safety staff into our residential community and hope that
you will feel comfortable to introduce yourself to the Officers if you see
them on your floor.
Should you need to call Public Safety for assistance, one of the Officers
will then be dispatched to you, and they will also keep Residential Life
staff informed of any problems or concerns they encounter. It is important
that all residential students serve as an escort whenever you have a guest
in the building. If Public Safety Officers come upon someone who may not be
a student, they will ask clarify who the individual is and where they
All members of our community are responsible for helping to maintain safety
at all times. We encourage you to contact Public Safety if you need
assistance, notice anything in the residence halls that is not as it should
be, or if you encounter a situation of concern to you. Residential Life
staff are also available to assist, and welcome your calls.
